News Briefs: Visit Europe without leaving Nevada County; Fair entry deadline today

French connection

Visit Europe without leaving Nevada County

All you have to do is host a French student, who will be here from Aug. 1-20. You don’t even need teenage children in the house to enjoy a visitor who will have a good command of English and offer help around the house. “He or she may make you a tarte fritz dinner or introduce you to Nutella,” said Dick Phillips, a big local fan of World Exchange, a New York-based student program that still needs five host families. Call Rosalie Plummer at 268-7343.
